Wish a beautiful piece of purple heart i got for christmas i made this simple but elegant shallow bowl so that so decorations could be put inside like you see in the picture to accent the bowl. It was a bit of a late christmas present but my granny was delighted :)

Beautiful. You are much more confident than I am. My first bowl was from maple firewood. I still don’t have the daring to put a chunk of purple heart onto the spinning destruct-o-matic. (Need to get back to that.)
